Hey All -
Just a quick update on our recent adventure to the Philadelphia Zoo for the Great Strides walk for CF. Our AWESOME group of supporters consisting of friends and family enjoyed a day of laughter and a little rain for a great cause. We explored, watched and learned all about the various animals that the zoo has to offer.
The little ones were so fun to watch as they were able to get an extra close look at the polar bear swimming, a peacock wandering around the park and a very large gorilla........ that decided to run full speed at the glass window and scare the you know what out of the lil bean.......(it was kinda scary actually.....he had some VERY LARGE teeth!!) I was so caught of guard by it that i couldnt even get my camera out in time......i was fumbling as i watch this enormous, and not so happy ape come charging at me and my lil nuggets......shesh......then he casually sat on some cardboard and lounged around while everyone laughed and talked about our encounter. Definately something we will never forget!!
Bean is doing well. She is still working to regulate the GI issue by taking three doses of Miralax daily. We keep a close eye on her hydration so we dont create another issue. She did wake up with some congestion and we have noticed she is sleeping more with her mouth open. A couple coughs in her sleep as well - so, hopefully what we do in the next few days (increasing her treatments) will make her feel better.
Bean is fearless. She loves to swim at Bma and Bpa's also. I can see already that we will have another lil fish on our hands. Swim lessons WILL start very soon for this little one.
I have posted picks of Great Strides 2010 in the photo section of the site. Thanks again for all of the support from my AWESOME family and friends.
